Three Nigerian students/graduates of the Thompson Rivers University, Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada, have been killed in a car crash that occurred last week.
They are identified as Daniel Okocha , Oluwatosin Adeojo and Femi Adebowale. The deceased and one other person were taking a trip in a car when it was struck by a pick-up truck.
RCMP were called to 1st Avenue and Battle Street at 1:40 a.m. PT after reports of the collision. Daniel and Femi died at the spot while Tosin later died at the hospital.
The owner of the truck was arrested Sunday but was released later that day. No charges have been laid.
A statement from the university’s president, Brett Fairbairn, posted on TRU’s website, says all four people in the car were international students, either current or alumni.
